Undergraduate Students

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS

Due to the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic and government guidance,  we have had to make some changes to the programme in order to mitigate against risks to health and to give you the best possible academic experience in the circumstances. We will continue to monitor and respond to the changing public health situation. The changes are:
·         The majority of lectures will be delivered online. It is hoped that some Part II lectures and classes will be able to be delivered in person, depending on the social-distancing guidelines in operation at the time. We will confirm the details as soon as possible.
·         It is hoped that as many language classes as possible will be delivered in person, depending on the social-distancing guidelines in operation at the time. We will confirm the details as soon as possible.

·         It is unclear whether some or all examinations will need to be conducted online. If it is not possible to conduct language examinations in person, some changes will have to be made to the range of authors which are set for unseen examination. We will confirm the details as soon as possible.
